About the Author

Tammy lives with her husband, Jeff and their two daughters in Tequesta, FL. Though she is originally from NC, she has called South Florida her home for over 12 years now and can’t imagine living anywhere else. Tammy graduated from College with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Communications and in Sociology. She wrote advertising copy for over 15 years for businesses and agencies alike. She also counseled mothers and children at abuse shelters and did case work with the Department of Social services. Those two things combined nurtured her love for writing and her love for children. It was in early 2003 that she started writing books. What started as a hobby branched into a career as a freelancer ghostwriting for people who wanted their books published. This allowed her to work from home while her kids were little. Now her girls are 6 and 8 years old, yet they still love hearing their mom make up children’s stories. It was their prodding that led her to put her stories in eBook format through outlets like Amazon. Tammy was shocked to see her books were downloaded more than 2500 times the very first month catapulting her to become a Kindle top-ranked author with school-aged kids. She is now self-publishing the books in paperback editions. Her titles include: Peyton Penguin Prefers Peas, Kendall Macaw Loves her Ma, Kids, Summer and a Shoestring Budget, Jesus, Why does Matt have Two Mommies? and Jesus, Why can't the Animals Talk?

This really isn't a 5-star book!! I don't know why the reviewer before me rate this book like that but it really isn't.

The book is very amateuristic with lots of links and google-found images which aren't even centred on the page. It really looks like a personal blog someone wrote and now decided to create into a book.

The author first rambles on and on why it is so expensive to arrange 'regular' summer arrangements for your children. As I'm not an American and summer camps aren't something 'normal' in my country I really don't see the big deal. The author states that all the things that are normal for me are very boring for children. Like going to the beach and play there with your sister. Why is that boring for young children? Plus, aren't they able to play with other kids that are also there? Just to make it clear, she has two daughters which her youngest one is 5 years old, the age of her oldest daughter isn't stated but looking at the picture, probably 2 or 3 years older. Planning play dates is something the author finds really hard, since she can hardly arrange one per month (her words). Is it really so difficult to plan play dates in America?! I just can't believe that.

She also rambles on about the level summer camps are on. She names the planning of the local art camp for young children (5 yo) and she really thinks that those children wouldn't like to go outside and paint on big aisles, or play with dough. The kids I know of that age are loving that!! The author however wants her children to visit museums and be taught by real artists.

Ok, and then here solution. It really isn't something new, I hope everybody in situations like this can think of it.

For kids, summer camp and fun are pretty much synonymous. A carefree time of swimming, campfires, hiking, discovery, good food (usually!), and plenty of friends.

For Mom and Pop, it can be a time of sweet relief from the kids and a chance to be "alone together." Or if you're a single parent, a chance to catch your breath and tackle some long-deferred projects - or maybe even get away on your own for a while.

Sounds good, right?

BUT. Ah, yes, there's the rub. The price tag. It can run from the hundreds into the thousands for a week or two of camp. If as a parent you send, say, two of your young `uns to camp, you could be out an easy $2,000 to even $10,000.

This book shows a better way. Actually, more than one way. And I'm not going to share those ways here in the review; otherwise, why would you buy the book? But I've read it, and I can guarantee you that summer camp for very little - or even totally free - is absolutely possible. I'd highly recommend this practical, real-world book to any parent or parents who want the advantages of summer camp for their kids, without needing to mortgage the ranch to do it.
